Need a break from work? Do you want to escape to a mountain retreat? How about a relaxing vacation with spectacular views of the beach?
Dubai can offer you all these and more.
Dubai – nestled amidst the golden sands of the Arabian Desert and fringed by the cerulean waters of the Persian Gulf on its western side – has become one of the world’s most magnificent cities.
Dubbed the “City of Gold,” it glimmers with its wealth of wonders — from the world’s tallest skyscraper to the largest shopping mall, there is no shortage of things to tickle your senses.

You can stroll through rows and rows of eclectic offerings in both the old-fashioned and shiny new souks, or choose to sate your adventurous side with exhilarating camel rides in the sunset.
